Marching with S.A.M.E. at the San Diego Pride Parade (tags)
A lot of progressive Queers and Queer-friendly allies have written off the annual Pride events as overly commercial, corporate and mainstream. But that's not what it felt like to me when I marched with the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) in San Diego's Pride Parade July 16. In a mixed contingent that also included members of the Bradley Manning Support Group and the International Socialist Organization, I felt like part of a movement, participating in an island of militant political awareness that asserted the values on which Pride was founded that have largely got lost in the overall celebration. With nine S.A.M.E. members facing criminal charges for seeking marriage licenses following the federal district court ruling declaring Proposition 8 unconstitutional, some of the signs the contingent carried linked their members -- and Bradley Manning -- to notorious American political prisoners of the past.

On Martin Luther King Day Parade 2005, as in the past years, there was a huge military and police display on King Blvd, and the usual harassment of the African American youths by the police. It is shameful that the government use the parade to promote the military, especially in the name of King who preached peace and love all his life. Corporations such as Coca Cola and Bank of America were in the parade to supposedly celebrate Dr. King birthday, but they were really self promoting themselves. All we could see on their floats were their corporate logos, names and colors. They were no supporting signs, photos, recording or portrait to commemorate the birthday of Dr. King on their floats. The people on one float were not hypocritical about it. They had this on their sign: Lawry’s Food Celebrates Eating Right With Flavors.
